You've seen how random.choice() works. It gets a random member from an iterable I want you t

i know am close but am stuck

# random_item("Treehouse")
# The randomly selected number is 4.
# The return value would be "h"

import random

You are so close!!

Just a little more. :grin:

Just two mistakes:

  • :point_right: Why are you surrounding table in quotes? Is table a string?
  • :point_right: Why are you returning random_number = ["table"]? You only need to return table.

I hope this helps! :grin: ~Alex :zap:
